Lets be honest here. There is far too much money for the state and Law Enforcement Agencies to loose to allow people the right to use a plant with a safer track record than aspirin. It is an illogical fallacy to think that legalization would cause an influx of anything besides people clearing out the snack isle at the local grocer. I advocate for decriminalization because it should have never been a criminal action to posses a plant in the first place and the poor souls who have been locked up and fined should be set free and have their fines returned. If prohibition is and was always about safety, then why on earth haven't all pain pills been reclassified as schedule 1 as it is apparent they are clearly more of a threat in NC than most of the illicit street drugs.
